6.5x.284 Norma (Win) Hunting Loads
Good Morning all. Been lurking here for some time and am glad I have found this forum. Seems to fill an information niche I have been looking for with good input.
I have a custom 6.5x.284, Krieger 26" #5 contour 1-9 barrel on a Mauser action, Accurate Innovation Stock and Timney trigger.
I am new to this Caliber and have not found an over abundance of information available as with other calibers I use. I am looking for some information regarding hunting loads. I have loaded Nosler 130 Accubonds as first rounds down the tube with a group of .250" or less, using 46.1 grs of RL-19 with an OAL of 2.870, expected MV around 2700. I have loaded some Hornady 120 gr A-Max yet to be fired, (weather) using 44.0 grains of Varget for small critters, OAL 2.833. Will fire and Chrono both, hopefully tomorrow.
Looking for a mix of loads to try. All input appreciated. Looking for some very accurate 100 yard MOA stuff on my own range and will test all at long range later in the month.
Glad to be here all.
